VARMIA - New Single And Video Released

Polish pagan/black metal alchemists Varmia, who pay tribute to their Baltic roots by combining black metal with traditional instruments such as the goat horn and the tagelharpa, have unleashed a new music video for their new song "Bielmo". The track is a preview of things to come on the band's third album, Bal Lada, which will be released by M-Theory Audio in spring 2021.

Band founder Lasota explains: ""Bielmo" means cataract or leukoma. Ancients say that the blind one sees more. It's the gifted one. And so, we cry to be blind to the lights, to the distracting glimmer. Let the sight turn inwards. This is the first song after the invocation that opens the album. The middle section invokes a northern wind. Walk into it and let your blood freeze and consciousness soar high."

Varmia was formed in 2016 by vocalist/guitarist/composer Lasota with a mission of fusing black metal with musical influences that pay tribute to the ancient Baltic tribes of the historical Warmia region of northern Poland. Vocally, harsh growls shroud the band's music and native Polish lyrics in a visceral aura, the only breaks occurring when using the traditional, ancient technique of "whitevoice" clean singing as utilized during ancient East-Central European rituals, rites of passage and festivals. Meanwhile, the power of the band's metal influences are enhanced on Bal Lada by traditional ethnic instrumentation of the Baltic Rites via sounds of tagelharpa, goat horn, wood tuba and krivula. The final result is a compelling mix of dark metallic sounds that channel the spirit of early Enslaved, Satyricon and Wolves In The Throne Room and folk elements that drive acts such as Wardruna.
